  7. I've been thinking about putting the 17x7s from the Saturn VUE (wheel style number 7033) on to my Reatta. Based on my findings using the calculator at http://www.wheel-size.com/calc/ , I'd try them with 215/40 R17 tires. Besides the likely outcome of the ride becoming unpleasant due to the lack of sidewall, I think this combo could be a fun choice for someone since the Saturn wheels have a similar look to the stock 15x6s. If I were to ever fit this wheel and tire combo to my 90 convertible (I doubt I ever will) I would have custom hub caps machined to match the look of the stock wheel set. See the attached photos for a little more info about my ideas. I'm interested to hear what you all think.
  8. Hey gang, First off, I want to thank you all in advance for being such an awesome resource for helping keep my 90 convertible on the road. Also, I've learned so much about my new hobby, fixing up a rare piece of Detroit history. Now to my question: I'm replacing my battery today because the terminal screw is stripped (don't worry, I'm going to convince Costco to replace it free), but my car doesn't have the piece that holds the battery down to the tray nor the screw that keeps that piece in place. Can anyone help me figure out what other GM cars from the era use the same battery tray so I can go to my neighborhood junk yard and find what I need? Thanks, reattadan
  9. wow, what a job. Mind you I'm a novice but that job isn't a fun one. I've got the new heater core in and the cooling system seems good. Now I just have to get the darn thing to blow hot. Anyone have experience adjusting the programmer? Do I need to take the whole dash down again?!?!?
  10. Finished putting the whole dash, steering column, instrument panel, etc after replacing the heater core to try and make the heat work (the previous owner bypassed). It doesn't blow hot. I think I need to calibrate the programmer with the climate control. Heck I'm not sure if the dang thing has vacuum but whatever.
  11. I'd be happy to do it! At this rate, it might be a little while.
  12. Thanks Ronnie, Yeah, I saw that one. I should write one for the 90/91 after this… because it's totally different. This task seems WAAAAY easier on the pre 90 models.
